I've got enough of the model done to try playing with the dilithium crystal matrix, and see if I can get this to fly.

Wow, I really did not expect the cheese to keep up this long... lets keep it up. I'll admit I'm no good at star trek but its just funny because I get this stuff.

Would that be an engine to show choice?

Actually believe it or not to avoid some of the errors the physics on the "UFO Just for fun" had, I'm working on a new "Engine to Hide" feature.

No pictures worth posting, but so far I have been able to eliminate the errors/warnings involved with loading a countra-spinning mass stabilization system to support a non-aerodynamic (Aristotelian rather than Newtonian laws of motion apply) profile.

While I've seen it presented with two doors, I've decided to go with the actual show prop which only has one.

And on a final note: Of all the asinine things to spend time researching (just to put Jose's mind at ease). The compartment at the aft end of the Galileo class shuttle is its engine room. This engine room, however, does contain one feature that has never been shown on any show but was mentioned once - namely a toilet, an essential item for a protracted interstellar journey (particularly those where coffee is served).

Basic model is completed at 4700 polys. Going to work some more on the physics, then on to the gingerbread (and I have a good bit planned for this one).
